Featured on Carats and Cake

One of my favorite weddings last summer was with a beautiful Alabama bride and her family for their destination San Diego wedding. Carats and Cake chose to feature the spectacular event which took place at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar, recently awarded Trip Advisors #1 luxury hotel in the United States.  It is all that and the reason so many brides choose this romantic wedding venue.

I was thrilled to be chosen for makeup and hair services!  My team and I beautified the bride, bridal party and moms within a 4 hour window of time insuring the girls didn’t have to start too early so they would be well-rested and full of energy for the long day.  The well-seasoned professionals selected by the bride and her family pulled the event together and seamlessly executed the day so that Heather, Wes and guests could celebrate one of the most memorable days of their lives.

The bridesmaid’s wore goddess-inspired dresses created by the bride herself who just so happens to be a fashion designer.  Heather purchased her exquisite gown from Kleinfeld Bridal.

Airbrush makeup & hair L’Auberge Del Mar wedding

One beautiful bride + 12 bridesmaids – Airbrush makeup & hair L’Auberge Del Mar wedding

I had a great time getting to know Robin throughout the beauty planning process for her and Adam’s wedding at L’Auberge Del Mar on August 30, 2014!  Robin had a clear vision of what she wanted for her wedding day “look” which was a warm, beachy style, not far from her everyday look …just a bit more polished.  I was able to meet her vision through the use of AirPro airbrush foundation allowing a full coverage finish for photos while looking completely natural in person and durable enough to hold up through the balmy August San Diego climate for more than 12 hours+.  I then used subtle peachy/pink tones overall and created large loose waves throughout her sun-kissed long tresses.  She made my job super easy!

With the help of four of my team members we were able to complete makeup and hair services on the bride, all 12 bridesmaids and mom in just 4 hours leaving plenty of time for pre-ceremony photos.  The bridesmaids chose various hairstyles and wore three different tones of blue dresses.  I thought the final look was picture perfect!  Speaking of …I’ve worked with her outstanding photographer Pam Scott many times over the past 12 – 15 years, or so, and she never fails to amaze with her outstanding work!  These photos are her work that she so generously shared with me!  More images from Robin and Adam’s wedding can be viewed on Pam Scott’s blog.
